The Third Hellenic Republic

"The island has faced up to invaders throughout its history, but the tourist invasion presents it with a new dilemma: to submerge its traditional ways in the pursuit of ever greater numbers or to try to raise the quality of development and at the same time preserve Cretes unique character.[...] How the island tackles this challenge will significantly determine the economic and social future as Crete enters the new millennium."
